What is General Education and why is it important?

Through communication, math, science, and social science courses, students have an opportunity to deepen interests and self-discovery. General education courses provide fundamental knowledge and skills used not only academically, but personally and professionally.

In today’s complex, diverse, and interconnected world, general education courses richen a student’s awareness of the community around them. Students learn to respond effectively utilizing critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills. These skills enhance skill-sets employers seek and create a platform to make informed decisions essential for individual success.
